2:00pm
heels of newsweek being sold and "the new york times" unloading boston globe after taking a 96% hit. jeff bezos is now the owner of "the washington post." we are all over it on fbn tonight. we're starting. hello, everyone, i am greg gutfeld, with kimberly guilfoyle, bob beckel, jessie waters, and she naps on the sun deck of her barbie dream house, dana perino. it is 5:00 in new york city. we're open for business! 20 embassies across the globe are closed this weekend due to terror chatter. not really across the globe, in certain parts of the globe. let me put it this way, if you're in a place christians are welcome, you're okay. so they're closed for fear of attack, which makes me wonder what movie is responsible for
2:01pm
this? sharknado? smurfs 2? i bet al qaeda was deceased. they're the paul mccartney of terror groups, their death was a hoax. if al qaeda is no longer serious threat, what constitutes a serious one, this? these or this. if al qaeda was no longer a threat, anthony weiner was no longer a perv. look, i am not making light of this, i never thought al qaeda was dead and i wish valerie jarrett, i mean president obama, had been right the first time. the threat is alive and well, which sensible people knew all along. the scary parts aren't really the threats, but that officials say our response to the threat is a lesson learned from benghazi. the lesson is close up shop because we can't protect you. that's no lesson. either you bolster security or get the hell out of the hell holes, but you don't close up shop because sooner or later the sign in the door will go from
2:02pm
closed to open and evil will return and it won't be there asking for directions. so kimberly, feeling delightful in green, they're closed until next saturday. at some point they have to reopen. then what do you do? >> people feel insecure about the ability of the united states to protect them, as you say, close up shop, close for business until we can figure something out or the chatter stops. that's when you're at the most vulnerable, as soon as you open back up again, that's when you're going to get hit. there's been a little activity in terms of predator strikes but no major casualties from that of any of the known leaders. hopefully from all of this chatter, which has been quite expensive, we develop other target lists, getting more information and some people need to be taken out, probably immediately. >> jessie, what do you make of the intel community saying they disclose too much information. do you think that's true? >> i do. i think when you announce that the intelligence came from yemen
2:03pm
and that it was specifically targeted for a specific period of time, and this goes back to a lot of other things in the administration with leaks, the virus with the israeli attack on the iranian nuclear program and leaked about the bin laden raid. i don't know why the administration is saying all these specific things because now all the resources that we have and all the people we gathered the intelligence from in these dangerous countries, why would they ever cooperate with us any more? >> they wouldn't. >> he makes a good point, bob. should president obama be impeached? >> i am drafting an article for myself over the weekend. first of all, let me make a few comments. nsa picked up some chatter. it is about time nsa got back to the business they're supposed to be in. secondly, al qaeda has made a point for years now not to use cell phones and other communications. dana made a point before the show maybe they're desperate. my guess is some of it may be
2:04pm
just to throw us off. the third thing, if we hadn't closed embassies and something happened, you all would be all over it. and the last thing i will say, embassies have been closed the last 75 years as circumstances dictate. this may be more closures, goes to teddy roosevelt when they closed some. i would not consider this american weakness. and also the yemens, not rogue or research, clearly upset, right winger. >> the bar scene is where all of the freaks hang out. that's the deal. >> dana, critics at the nsa would say this is really convenient for this to happen while the programs are under fire and snowden is embarrassing us, now we can come say look at all that we uncovered. >> i am uncomfortable talking
2:05pm
about intelligent things. in a previous life, i would say we're not commenting on this. now we have so much more information in the public. david sanger of "the new york times" wrote a piece about how there's too much classified information in the government. he is probably right. but something like this, where you talk about sources, methods, how people are communicating, terrorists are communicating with one another, to me it does seem overbroad, right? however, the threats to our libyan embassy was very specific. remember, ambassador chris stevens sends a letter specifically saying we have a threat assessment on this embassy. that was a specific thing. i am fine if people learn lessons, that's okay. i'm comfortable talking about sources and methods. i think this is not a partisan issue. complacency is america's biggest enemy and al qaeda knows that. so if we have to be vigilant, our vigilance doesn't stop after
2:06pm
a month, interesting thing from a foreign policy aspect, is president obama responsible for al qaeda's morphing and evolution. >> i don't know about that. >> maybe not. >> one of the reasons for the increased chatter here is a lot of these prisoners have escaped from where we have been holding them and we have been releasing them. so you have the abu ghraib prison break, morsi in egypt released about a thousand the other day, in afghanistan we have a program where we pay militants to leave the battlefield, they get to keep their guns, just have to sign the dotted line, say i am going to reintegrate into the community. >> they should do that for chicago. it might work. sundays, everybody knows i love to watch the sunday shows, i sit and record them just for this show. here is a montage of people talking about the terror threats. >> a threat to blow up an embassy, consulate or something else. >> that part of it is unspecified, but the intent seems clear. >> and the intent is to what?
2:07pm
>> the intent to attack western not just u.s. interests. >> this is an effort to terrorize us, to drive us out of the mid east, and if we ever take the bait, try to come home, try to create fortress america, you'll have another 9/11. >> this is probably one of the most specific, credible threats i have seen perhaps since 9/11. >> it is a wakeup call. al qaeda is in many ways stronger than it was before 9/11. >> bob went oh. >> you going to be okay? >> the truth is the al qaeda that orchestrated 9/11 has been decimated. it has now -- its name inherited by a number of different terrorist groups, it is alive and well, if you want to call it, but it is not the same al qaeda. releasing prisoners from guantanamo and other places went back from bush administration into obama administration. we have done it for perfectly legitimate reasons. there was overcrowding down there, they need to get them out, some of them did get back into the game.
2:08pm
most did not. >> 30% recidivism. >> that's a lot. and what's the problem with overcrowding? i get it if you're living with the family, but you're prisoners! >> in a tropical paradise, and you get to play soccer. >> the soccer field is good. expensive. some of those people, by the way, have provided and continue to provide as i understand intelligence overseas. >> kg, you have a problem with bob? >> i love you bob, but i have to take issue when you say al qaeda has been decimated, they're not, they shape shift and change their name and it is the same roster. the current leadership is all former ex-gitmo detainees now smarter, better, more cash in the pocket, and now fostering new attacks. strong connections to al-zawahri and pakistan. this is the new face of terror and they're boulder and stronger.
2:09pm
to say we decimated puts us at operational disadvantage, it is not an accurate statement. >> let me say, george bush kept a picture of people with the cards, he got rid of virtually the entire top leadership of al qaeda with the exception of osama bin laden who was eventually caught. >> why are we making this -- i don't see this as partisan. the most dangerous -- we keep talking about the two presidents, this is america, and if complacency is our biggest enemy, we should all work together and say look, do you trust the government or not. skepticism, healthy in a democracy, and every bit of skepticism they got today for the administration was the same as the bush administration used to do. i think that's probably a good thing. >> decimate means you destroy everything but 10%? >> i think maybe, not sure about the technical definition. >> can you get back to me while we roll the tape where they talk
2:10pm
about al qaeda being decimated. >> there should be no doubt today america is stronger and al qaeda is on the path to defeat. we decimated al qaeda's leadership. al qaeda is on the path to defeat and bin laden is dead. >> we decimated al qaeda central, we eliminated osama bin laden. >> al qaeda is much weaker than it was when i came into office. >> osama bin laden is dead and general motors is alive. >> the war in afghanistan is coming to a close, al qaeda is on the path to defeat, osama bin laden is dead. today the core of al qaeda in afghanistan and pakistan is on the path to defeat. their remaining operatives spend more time thinking about their own safety than plotting against us. >> if you notice, he said al qaeda in afghanistan and pakistan are on the run and he is exactly right. >> do you think that's what americans, that's the message they were trying to deliver from
2:11pm
the white house to america during the 2012 election that they were being specific about al qaeda in pakistan? that's not what they meant at all, that's why they're in -- i support them, but when you start watering down the global war on terror for political reasons. >> dangerous. >> the question, is al qaeda left in afghanistan, no, in pakistan, no. >> all that stuff was the reason why they played down benghazi before the election. all this stuff. it was alive, it was well, and it is coming back. they covered it up. >> they have tentacles, now they have different names and different factions and they're still bold and operating and strong enough to the point we consider it a credible threat that we are shutting down embassies. if i was in an embassy, i would say shut it down. no one is going to help me if i am stuck, even though you could get help there to get me out. >> you can play word games, decimated, it is not, they tried to sell they were decimated
2:12pm
before the election, obviously they were not, said the war on terror was over, obviously it is not. susan rice, where is she? is she on the sunday shows? last time i heard about susan rice she was holding these meetings with i think john kerry who was on his yacht the last time in egypt and james clapper, director of national intelligence who lied to congress last time he was on the hill. i think the big speech he gave three months ago when he said technically the war on terror is over. >> technically he didn't say that. >> look it up. look it up, bob. i think we'll have the tape for you when we come back. >> you're hoping. >> technically. is that the word? >> no, if you read between the lines, which i know you can do, bob, which i know you can do, he did say essentially the war on terror was over as we know it, and it's not. >> dana now what is the lesson because they say sources say officials learned lessons from
2:13pm
benghazi. >> i don't know specifically what that lesson is. i do from a macro political standpoint. i think it is key for the president of the united states to have to rally the nation when you are at war, and war is tiring. and america is tired of being at war. when people think about that, it is specific to iraq and afghanistan. i understand that piece of it. but the president has to rally and remind people the vigilance is so important. on the nsa program in particular if the communication between the two terrorists led us to information that said we had to shut something down, does that not mean the nsa program is worth something? and could someone in the administration besides general alexander have to go out and try to defend it? we're all trying to defend the president's use of a program that's very important and he won't even help us defend him. >> acknowledge it is important. >> acknowledge it is incredibly important, did its job, intercepted overseas people that are terror threats to the united states. that's entirely different than intercepting --
2:14pm
>> how do you know. >> what? >> that communication between the two phones didn't come through the united states? and that's the only way you know. you see what i mean? they could be using the lone terrorist in boston, tsarnaev, who communicated back and forth. we don't know, the nsa is collecting lots of different on.bers to try to find out >> peter king said -- >> how would you have more information than he does? >> i am not suggesting that, he suggested it was chatter within the peninsula, it was not chatter between the united states. >> how do you know? >> that's what he said. >> how do you know that he is wrong? >> i am not saying he is wrong, he said it, i'll give him that. >> goes to the same line, you can't find needles unless you have a haystack. you need the grid to connect the dots. >> you have to employ a lot of people to look for the needles, it is expensive, but it is the most important thing to do to protect ourselves.
2:15pm
>> how long do we have to keep this war on terror going? >> it is a mindset from the muslim world, a certain set of the muslim war, jihadists that declared war on us. it could be a lifetime. >> i would rather have war on terror than war on drugs. we been doing the war on drugs forever and it failed. >> i can guarantee you it failed. >> the minute you say it is over, the minute you lose. >> attacks were scheduled sunday for the night of power, first versus were revealed to muhammad which some use to encourage infiddles. i got to meet the smurfs, they like to party. ahead on the five, major league baseball dropped a hammer on a-rod and 12 other players suspected of doping. what's a-rod's punishment? stay tuned to find out.

♪ so do you think jessie waters looks like -- >> in honor of president obama's 52nd birthday, organizing for action, a group that promotes his agenda at several events around the country to help sell obama care, didn't draw masses in virginia. 20 miles from the nation's capital. dozens of conservative lawmakers threaten government shut down if an upcoming spending bill continues to fund obama care. is that the right strategy? paul ryan doesn't think so. >> we all, republicans, want to repeal and replace obama care, it is not a matter of whether we want to get rid of obama care, we do. we're having debate about the best course of achieving that goal, the best strategy. with a government shutdown, you talk discretionary spending, government agencies budgets, but
2:21pm
doesn't affect entitlement. obama care is entitlement like medicare and social security. so it will go on during government shutdown, so it is not that simple and easy. >> jim demint running the heritage foundation sees it this way. >> this may be the last opportunity to stop it. now, there's no republican that i'm aware of who wants to shut the government down. the whole point is we need to fund the government, but we should not fund obama care. >> i call on you. >> i do think the organizers for president obama's birthday celebration on obama care should have thought it through a bit. it was one of the most beautiful days weather wise, sunday in august before kids go back to school. they don't want to go to an obama care party to talk about how great it is so they set themselves up for pr failure there. every day you can find another
2:22pm
person, another group that says they don't like it. "the wall street journal," 48% of the uninsured think it is bad policy. there's a steep upward hill to climb. i understand why there is the fight or disagreement amongst republicans about strategy on how to go forward. but i don't know how it is going to end. i am waiting for bob to bail me out. >> i am going to bail you out, ryan is exactly right. you talk about shutting down the government, you're talking about discretionary spending which means all agencies and departments of the government are shut down because they're discretionary. but when they did this originally, they opted out of social security, medicare, medicaid and entitlements. obama care will go forward. it is not a question of whether it succeeds or not, it is there. the question is are you in position politically at some point to take it apart, which means you need a republican president and good majority, you need a majority in the senate
2:23pm
and i don't think it is going to happen. the question is are you going to live with it, change it, or kill it. not going to dismantle it. >> decimate. >> decimate. i think if they had sense, they would do two things, sell insurance across state lines, do tort reform. >> wait, we were talking about that in 2010. >> i tried to get that message through and it was not heard. >> here's the thing, i respect what the republicans are trying to do, jim demint and mike lee, i understand that. once you have an entitlement and you give people free stuff and subsidies roll out, you can't take it away, the tentacles are in, that's like poison. try to take cash away from someone. the problem is the communication strategy and leadership turns into a shut down fight with president obama and the mainstream media. i think they're going to blink, cave, and i don't think president obama will let his
2:24pm
signature piece of legislation be defunded because the republicans shut down the government, that's not going to happen. what's going to happen might be a better strategy, let it crumble under its own weight, once fines start coming in. >> if you push to delay the individual mandate, that could happen. >> now i would like to call on will i am. >> i love the one person showing up for the obama care event, she showed up thinking it was traffic school. let down. is it possible to actually shut it down? i don't think it is. the debate is a waste of time, like going to the gym, spending an hour doing yoga, all that effort for no reward. i think you let this implode. you can't keep feeding america poop and telling them it is godiva. it is not godiva, it is poof. we are living at a time where celebrity opinions on health care are more respected and
2:25pm
valued than doctors. real doctors hate this. but people that play doctors like it. that is poop. >> i was going to say you can say all you want about this thing, but it is going forward and the question is what are you going to do? is it going to fall from its own weight? how, it is legislation. you have to have enough republicans to defeat it. >> dana is mouthing things to me now. apparently i have to go. >> isd? >> what does it stand for. >> this is where they talk to us. now i am distracted by godiva chocolate with the caramel inside. everyone keep sending me that. coming up, a 13-year-old boy is brutally attacked by three other teens on a school bus while the driver looks on. he called for help. should he have stepped in to help the young victim. you'll hear from the bus driver.

♪ tomorrow night, president obama will sit down with jay leno for the sixth time. times have changed since his last appearance in 2012. according to the center for media and public affairs, the president is now the top target for late night comedians, the punch line for 288 jokes in monologues the first half of the year. >> people say hey, letterman, they say, why don't you make jokes about obama? i don't make jokes about him because i don't want the fbi tapping my phones, my phones, that's why! >> i was going to start with an obama joke but i don't want to get audited by the irs, so forget that. >> president obama was visiting a middle school, said every school in the u.s. should have high speed internet. got awkward when one kid said what, so you could read our e-mails faster? >> and the white house has a new
2:42pm
slogan about benghazi, hope and change the subject. thank you, move quickly! >> all right. quite a change from the year before. the only person that comes close to that kind of ridicule, fellow democrat, anthony weiner. >> your fellow? >> not my fellow by any stretch of the imagination. according to the study, all the late night hosts this year make fun of democrats more than republicans, but letterman still makes fun of republicans more, he is still stiff and radical as always. >> so the increase in obama jokes happened in the first half of this year, after his final election, when he cannot be elected any more, so they didn't want to be rude, they wanted to wait until he was ensconced in an eight year thing. none of those were about obama, they were about nsa and the irs. >> these jokes when you have an election year like this, except for weiner, you have to take current affairs.
